Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.
Befrore you plunk your $ down ...\015\012\015\012I dont now that you melted the hair so much as you may have an accululation of gunk and hair. If there is a good (not 'fast food' type) auto parts store near you, go there and ask the cou ... Electrolux 1910 Bagless Upright Vacuum
I have 2 Hoover Wind Tunnel-self propelled bagged vacuums-U6433-900 model.The roller bar does not agitate, the self propelled feature does not work and, in general, the vacuum is not performing well. I have replaced the roller bar, the v belt and the wide belt. The filters have been replaced and it has a new bag. I have had both of these since 2004 and they were fairly expensive $200 each) but if the repairs are prohibitive, I might as well get new vacuums. Suggestions? I just spent $100 for bel

Hoover bagless cannister 3765 - belt on power head slips off spindle. bought new belts - same problem. is this a design problem or can it be fixed? I don't want to take it to a repair shop 100 miles away and have them just put on a new belt. saw idea of smaller belt - what number? couldn't find suggested royal 104425001 belt.
I would not recommend a smaller belt. You will only wear the motor. This model series power nozzle needs to have a metal clip installed near the belt on the brush roller housing.

My robot will not charge. Tried multiple resets and new battery from irobot.com (both suggested by Irobot customer service) but got nowhere. The vacuum did work for a short time (until the new partially charged battery ran out). If I bypass the internal charging circuits and charge directly from the charger (with jumpers) the robot seems to work fine. Unfortunatey, there is no mechanism to turn off the charge cycle, so this is not practical.

Hi, I have a Kenmore Whispertone canister vacuum that I purchased in 2007. The model # is 116.22271503C, which seems to confuse the parts people. I need to buy a new powerhead & a few months ago was given a price of $75, but now Sears Canada tells me the part # is 20 116KC5OXBZRZUO1 described as Power Mate Assembly for $192.99. I thought the Power Mate was the small powerhead for stairs, upholstery, etc. Have they located the wrong part for me, or is this really what it costs?? Thanks in advance

Help hi there. i have a hoover savvy u8172-900 vaccum. the hose has great suction, but there is limited suction on the main unit and the brush does not spin when i try to use the product. we have cleared the brush of any debris and have also installed a new bag. a few days ago, we disconnected the hose to make sure there was not any foreign bodies stuck in the unit...nothing seems to help. any advise?
